I’ve said this before–I rarely link to reviews on here, but this one had me smiling so big last night when I found it!
Here’s a short excerpt:
“Join Angel and all her friends in this second installment of a very magical world where the meaning of life is a reflection of our real world and beyond. Readers will certainly be entertained. Kat Heckenbach spins a tale that C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien would certainly endorse. The Toch Island Chronicles is a must read for anyone who loves fantasy. — Stefanie Longwood”

I’ll be the guest speaker at a local writers group, in Brandon, FL. The date is Feb 27th, and the meeting starts at 7 pm. My topic is the pros and cons of being published through a small press.
Click HERE for info on the group and directions to the meeting.
And HERE for the article in my local paper that details the event.
I told myself before the Necronomicon that I’d run a giveaway when I got back. It took me a few days to get in gear, but here it is. Two copies up for grabs.
Note that there is less than two weeks to enter! And PLEASE share the link!
It’s less than a month away. The 2013 Necronomicon, that is. If you don’t already know, this is a sci-fi/fantasy/horror/anime/gaming convention that takes place every year in the Tampa Bay area.
In past years, it was in St Pete, but this year it will be at the Embassy Suites USF in Tampa, from October 18th to 20th.
(Click here for full info. Registration is only $35, btw.)
I will be participating as an author for the second year. Which means I get to be on cool panels!
This year, the panels I’m on are:
||Writing Basics–Creating Anti-Heroes, Rogues, and Villains
||Social Media and the Author
||How to Keep Writing in the Face of Adversity
||Religion in Science Fiction and Fantasy
Hope to see you there!
Running another promo on Amazon. Protection’s Prison, which I basically think of as Toch Island 1 1/2, is free on Kindle now through September 19th. CLICK HERE to get yours.
If you don’t have a Kindle, the Kindle apps for your computer, tablet or phone are free. And this is a short read (about 20 pages) so no excuses ;).
And please remember that honest reviews are much appreciated, as is spreading the word.
So, yeah, haven’t updated much here. The action tends to take place on my blog, but even that hasn’t been exactly hopping lately. But I just got back from an amazing writers conference.
Go HERE to read about the first day of the trip.
And HERE for my a-ha moment.
And while you’re there, follow the site for more updates!
BTW–Finding Angel is now up to 56 reviews on Amazon. Nope, I am not going away!
Just a few links for you today:

~Seeking Unseen is a finalist in the Parable Award, which is a cover art award for speculative fiction novels. The winner will be announced at the Realm Makers conference at the end of this month. More info on all that HERE.
~I’m on Pinterest! And I have started a board with images of characters and places and such all related to Toch Island Chronicles. So, if you’d like to see images that reflect how I see story elements in my head, visit HERE. It is, of course, a work in progress, so feel free to follow the board if you have a Pinterest account.
